Pi Kappa Alpha Historical Society
Preserving and protecting the Fraternity’s rich history is vital to the Foundation’s mission. The Pi Kappa Alpha Historical Society, a unique entity formed under the Foundation’s 501c3 status, manages all the historical artifacts and relevant records contained within the museum, library and archive spaces throughout the Memorial Headquarters. Your donations to the Pi Kappa Alpha Historical Society ensure the history and founding values of our Fraternity are preserved for future generations!
You can personally make a gift of $25 or your chapter can make a group gift at 100% giving for $20 per chapter member. This amount can easily be budgeted into your chapter dues structure.

Health and Safety
Brother Blake Caummisar (Mississippi, Gamma Iota ’12), unexpectedly passed away in 2016. Since then, his parents, Beth and Stan Caummisar, have been advocating mental health awareness in hopes of saving the lives of others. Stan and Beth have played vital a role in launching the PIKE ULifeLine which offers members an online mental health resource center. Additionally, their support made the Generation RX suite of educational resources specifically about responsible and legal use of prescription medications that is available to all inter/national fraternal organizations. With the help of friends, family, PIKE brothers, and alumni, the Pi Kappa Alpha Foundation’s Blake Nicholas Caummisar Fund was created to provide funding for programs and initiatives to promote wellness and a healthy lifestyle for all Pikes.
